Bring your bathing suit and prepare to relax. This is a great place to enjoy the warm waters and all the benefits of a spa. The baths are simple and not too fancy. Just the place to relax.

Great place to relax after a day of walking on the Canigou. Well run spa with 3 pools plus a stone amphitheatre where you can lie down in the sun after bathing

Our family have been coming here for some time, it is in a beautiful location and the effect of the thermal water and open air surroundings are immense. I have a spinal condition and they have a lift up to the baths and i just wallow in them and feel so much better afterwards. There is also Remise en Forme... More

3 outdoor pools - one of which is really just a paddling pool. The other two are OK, but the water is sulphurous - be aware. The jacuzzis downstairs (for which you have to pay extra) are OK, as is the relaxation room. The Steam room is almost pitch dark and for lovers of extreme steam only. Be aware -... More

Having lived in the Pyrenees for 20years we always made a visit to the baths a MUST, every few weeks to ease the muscles as we were renovating a barn. Yesterday we went to the baths, we now live in England so it was much needed visit. The small cafe on the entrance to the cafe is new and such... More

Heavenly location in the Pyrenees - quite hard to find but that means it is very peaceful and secluded. Lovely warm spa waters, followed by sunbathing, followed by more spa waters, and then inside for a steam room/hammam and massages. Came out feeling a new person.

This is a wonderful thermal spring without many of the frills and added expenses found at most of the spas in France. The baths are found at the end of a long, narrow, twisting mountain road about 1 kilometer from Fontpedrouse. Just when you think that the road is going nowhere you arrive at a parking area big enough for... More

The place is really cute and the entrance fee is only 5 euros. The facilities are not great but in a sense it is part of the charme of this natural spa in the mountains near Prades in the french region of Rousillion. Really worth spending a few hours in the hot water in the open air swimming pool. You... More

The Pyrénées-Orientales is blessed with lots of hot spring water holes, but unfortunately we don't have many places in this region where you could just come for a day and enjoy mother nature's hot springs for cheap with family, friends or on your own. Most of these water spring wells are leased to private Spa Thermal stations, which would then... More
